Womack's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt: "If you believe in the sanctity of human life, if you would like to see Roe v. Wade overturned, if you would like to see Arkansas be the first state to tell Washington, “We are not murderers. We value our citizens (even the pre-term ones),” then vote for me to be YOUR representative in the house."
- Excerpt: "As every family around knows, everything is easier with a little more money in our pockets. We all live on a sensible budget and it is time that our government joined us on it. I hope that I can take that sense of fiscal responsibility from your neighborhood to the Arkansas House of Representatives."
- Excerpt: "I will promise to work diligently with anyone who is genuinely interested in doing the tough work to reform our current system so that first-class medical care is available to anyone who needs it."
- Excerpt: "I think that one of the greatest things about this country and state is that we care for our own. Problems arise through the abuse of programs when people go from taking a helping hand to reliance."

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
- Legislators are scored on their votes on the principles the Advance Arkansas Institute seeks to promote: free markets, individual liberty and limited transparent government.
- Legislators are scored on the bills that the CFC found most important.
- Legislators are scored on the bills specifically supported by Arkansas Learns.
Womack and his wife have seven children.
